Ever since Cora's father disappeared through the ice, whispers about her family's "curse" have grown increasingly louder. Desperate to help her mother and siblings survive another bleak season in the Winter King's frozen grasp, Cora begins to bend (and even break) the rules she has kept since she was a little girl. But when she discovers a secret that's much bigger than herself, she realizes too late that she has put herself—and those she loves—in even greater peril.

Wintry and dangerous but hauntingly lovely, The Winter King is the debut novel from author Christine Cohen.

"Author Christine Cohen fills her debut novel with courage, suspense, unexpected twists, and deep Biblical truths." ~WORLD Magazine

"The Winter King is a beautiful book in every way, stirring and lovely, a tale of courage marinated in deep truth and laced with echoes of Till We Have Faces. This is exactly the kind of book I want to fill my family's shelves with." ~N.D. Wilson, bestselling author of the 100 Cupboards series, the Ashtown Burials series, and Outlaws of Time

Christine Cohen was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. She spent most of her formative years roaming evergreen forests with her sister and a stalwart yellow lab, feeding her love of adventure a steady diet of stick forts and slingshots. Now she lives with her husband and three kids in a delightfully rural college town. When she's not writing, she pursues other creative outlets like baking sweet things and eating more than her share. The Winter King is her first novel.

Magnificent book!!

I first listened to this book on canon plus but enjoyed it so much that I purchased it. I have recommended it to multiple people and have even done a book report on it. Christine has created a book that is enjoyable by all ages that it is intended for and above. I hope to one day be an author and would be unbelievably happy if I would write something half this good! I also would highly recommend Christine's other book "The Sinking City"
